Biography[]

Nandan Roty[2] was a human male who served as an officer in the city of Canto Bight's police department.[1] In around 34 ABY,[3] Roty joined a game of cards being played by officer Stepheden Thaldree and another member of the department in the jail of the Canto Bight police headquarters. The trio was then attacked by the astromech droid BB-8, who was seeking to free his comrades Finn and Rose Tico from the jail.[1]

Nandan Roty was tied up by BB-8.

The droid managed to subdue all three officers and tie their hands and feet, also gagging Roty with his gloves. The criminal DJ, who had just released himself from his cell, then discovered BB-8 and his three captives, each of whom gave muffled cries for the criminal to help them. Another officer then discovered the scene, and demanded BB-8 and DJ surrender; however, as Roty watched, BB-8 began launching coins at the officer, who DJ then knocked out with his boots. BB-8 and DJ then successfully escaped from the prison.[1]
